to disrupt not just at the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is when it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business, advancing an idea you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architect of our own destiny, that there are key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if you do not address them, i do not think we can remain the most competitive country in the world. first, i think it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense when we educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up companies elsewhere. why are we not stapling right to their graduate application a visa or a green card? second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that that system is also broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, there w

said, which is letting the states and localities lead because they know what's best when it comes to their state. and you're seeing that right now, whether it's governor bob mcdonnell in virginia, governor christie or maybe bloomberg in new york who are saying, hey, we know exactly what we need in our state or in the case of new york city, we know what needs to get done, how to do it best. we know where everything is -- >> but isn't that essentially the way fema works? >> hold on, chris. what the governor said and what is -- his point is, is that the federal government should let states lead where they know best, in localities where they know best. getting the federal government in the middle of a disaster situation where immediate response is crucial, helping those in need and having firsthand local knowledge about where things are, where assets are prestationed and how to do it most effectively without the red tape and bureaucracy of the government is probably the most effective way to help people in need. >> well, but that's the way it works now because in consultation with the
the same type of really local level where they tried to take over local level offices. the tea party -- i did not see the same kind of activity. the tea party went at local levels. a lot of times you didn't see it. the fact that ted cruise out of texas won the republican nomination is because of their local tea party group that mobilized at the very local level, the microlevel, below the radar. even polls in texas showed his opponent was leading in the polls, but then came election day and ted cruz swept and one reason was because of those institutions that had been created that were durable. however if those institutions have not been set up in other places, i don't know exactly where they have and haven't, but where they haven't i would suspect to see a waning tea party activity. but even if people aren't organizing, that doesn't mean that the sentiment isn't there. this question about are you a supporter of the tea party movement is almost similar to are you a supporter of the occupy wall street movement? it's a way for people to identify a unique set of views that we don't get by just

estate. i really pay attention locally. i think that is really important. i think people need to really start at home. i tried to listen to everybody. i called on the republican line. i definitely listen to other people. i watch a lot of c-span, which educates me a lot. people need to not be so easily set -- easily lead it. host: thank you. on our twitter page -- another key florida newspaper endorses mitt romney. to reset is on the phone from jersey city, new jersey. -- theresa is o nthe phone. caller: i do not think it matters to they endorse. they are just like people. they slant one way or the other. they are either liberal newspapers or conservative newspapers. i really feel that people -- especially republicans -- they are easily influenced by whatever they said. when the mitt romney said he discounted the 47%, to me that did it to everyone. if you had a daughter and your doctor was going out with a guy and he was a run his friends and you had somebody taking him and he talked about your doctor like a dog and said i hate her -- daughter like a dog. then he got i it around you and
going north that you need to take this very seriously. follow the instructions of your state and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advice. >> gregg: this storm is in the minds of all americans including on the campaign trail. here is vice presidential nominee paul ryan a short while ago in ohio? >> let's today when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that is coming. let's not forget those fellow americans of ours. >> gregg: doug is live in delaware where residents are anxiously preparing for sandy? >> it is basically here right now. winds are gusting probably about 30 miles an hour. gusting a bit more than that. gust comes along and knocks you off your feet a little bit. this is shaping up in this area as a classic storm coming out of north-northeast. it is typically in this region. nor'easters cause more damage than hurricanes. it's called the ash wednesday storm of 1962, johnf. kennedy was president. hundreds of buildings were destroyed in this area, literally thousands of buildings
need to provide the local help, the federal help. it's a once in a lifetime storm. but the first responders. i can't say enough about them. they have been out all night. no sleep, making sure people who might be in harm's way are out of harm's way. this has been people pulling together in a unified way. it's just the best of america and the best of new jersey. megyn: that's the thing about these storms. the government helps some but individuals help a lot. >> right now i'm five feet, 10 feet away from a downed power line. that's something we need to admonish people to stay away from any power line down on the ground because it could be hot. megyn: that's a good point. >> watch out for fast-moving water. it can take you away. megyn: congressman chris smith, thanks for being with us and all the best to you in your jurisdiction. we apologize the cell phone service is spotty throughout the northeast in the wake of the storm. he was mostly understandable for most of that conversation and we appreciate you bearing with us on that. one of the country's top pollsters finds himself at the
the situation in your local community. listen to your state and local officials, follow instructions. the more you follow the instructions, the more they can deal with situation. next obviously i want to talk about the extraordinary hardship seen over the past 48 hours. our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families to of lost loved ones. unfortunately there have been fatalities as a consequence of hurricane sandy, and it's not clear that we have counted up all the fatalities at this point. obviously this is something that is heartbreaking for the entire nation, and we certainly feel profoundly for the families who have been uprooted and will be going through some very tough times over the next several days, perhaps weeks and months. the most important message i have for them is that america is waiting. -- with you. we are standing behind you, and we will do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. earlier today i had a conversation with the governors, and many of the mayors in the affected areas, including governor christie, cuomo, and bloomberg. want to praise them for the e
, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of american family. what is happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money. makes no sense. tells me the bulle bullet hasn't been taken out. [ applause ] tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans don't care about it much. >> bret: it turns out at first after katrina congress did not waive the stafford act, that 10% local match requirement that then senator obama was referring to for new orleans. but it was waived by cong
prevent attacks on u.s. troops in afghanistan from local police or service members if the goal to train them? >> well, first of all, i would not -- never stand here and say we can prevent it. there will be, again, this is an enemy tactic. infiltration, radicalization, influence. you know, this is a society that has suffered under conflict for 30-plus years where young men have often settled their grievances with a gun as opposed to a conversation. and so i can't prevent it. i mean, i just -- we've got to be honest about that. but what we can do is we can continue to work to mitigate that risk, and it's a complex issue. it gets at how do they come into the service, we call it vetting. and then it's while they're in the service, how do we, how do we partner with them to establish that level of trust that -- by the way, i mean, i think it's important to note, and the australians came to the same conclusion. it's often, one of the ways you can mitigate the risk is actually by becoming closer to them, not by walking away from them. you can't commute, i mean, this is just a fact, and i've don
and local money. how about giving of a cut the forecast. >> let us check with the golden gate bridge we are seeing some areas of fog and degrees of visibility. from the north bay, santa rosa. the visibility is improving a bit with just three counts. but it just poor visibility and even redwood city. redwood city is only to my house. we are seeing areas of dense fog to start the work week. mostly cloudy conditions and generally in the 50s. and for this afternoon a gorgeous day with lots of sunshine. slightly warmer compared to yesterday. tonight prequel but a decent baseball forecast. -pretty cool. -- >> and also, high level clouds and the rain saying to the north of a split that ridge of high pressure will state employes for the next couple days with even warmer for the next couple of days. for the futurecast, the yellow is indicating the 70's in the orange is indicating the 80s. we will see 90's. for tonight, the yellow is indicating 70's with a cool down. and the east bay for this evening. you are able to go out but bring a jacket. mountain view, 76. and 77 degrees. cupertino, also pa
this won't be a threat. and i believe that local decisions should be supported by local funding. that's where the property tax comes in. but i also believe in targeted aid which is why i support a reversal of the claremont decision that has really destroyed local public policy making for education as well as local funding and destroyed the opportunity for the state to provide for targeted aid to help our cities and towns in that area. and then we need full funding of special education and other mechanisms that will lower the property tax burden. but in the end it's a decision made by the decision makers in the cities and towns about how much they spend. >> moderator: do you have a follow? >> mr. lamontagne, specifically, do you have a plan to provide property tax relief to new hampshire residents? lamontagne: first of all, i do, and i think what it is is bringing back economic recovery to new hampshire. as goes economic recovery, so will go more revenues for state government, for example, and local communities in terms of broadening the tax base. that is the way it works. and then loo
thing back to what you say the national versus the local, i believe at the beginning of the convention was that the local conditions on the ground didn't really matter. it was the national economy. it was the national messaging, and that everything would sort of stwing in the same direction at the same time. this campaign has sort of pushed that logic aside. we see states like ohio where the president is hanging strong, and orr ones like wisconsin where he gained 15 points on him. >> i remember the reaction of democrats and republicans in 2000. the thing that jumped out at me. week brs the 2000 election, the assumption was that al gore had the electoral college advantage. bus would win the popularity joke. the republicans began to make noise, and it involved potentially trying to flip over gore electors and stay the will of the people needs to be up respected ear. that changed that philosophy when the results came in. i wonder what your reaction would be and what you think the reaction of the conservatives in general would be if this time around romney wins the popular vote and barack
